Michael Williams reports in at GQ on an incredible sweater from L.L. Bean’s 96-year-old archives. “Made out of unscoured wool (which is naturally water-resistant), it’s just as warm and durable as it was when sported by seafarers decades ago—and style-wise it’s tough to go wrong here, whether your tastes tend toward the urban haute bourgeoisie or something more like Richard Proenneke’s “Alone in the Wilderness”. Available here.

Added bonus: 1965 and 1980 catalog scans after the jump.
